Danny Lawrence Larson was born April 12, 1951 in Montevideo, MN the son of Lawrence and Florence (Teigen) Larson and they lived in Watson. He was the 9th of 11 children in his family. Danny was baptized at Zion Lutheran Church. After his mother’s death, the family moved to Minneapolis where he graduated from high school in 1969. He worked in road construction, water and sewer construction, as a truck driver, a farmer, and also a bartender. He was united in marriage with Lorraine Solseth in June of 1981. They had 37 wonderful years together and enjoyed gardening and canning in the fall. He was an avid fisherman, hunter and trapper. Danny was a “legend” in his time as a fisherman. For many years, if Danny wasn’t working he was fishing. When you called him on the phone he would answer it by saying “talk to me” and then he would chuckle. He enjoyed the farmer’s market and he had a special place in his heart for his dogs.
